I understand single-sport periodization on at least a basic level. I also understand the concept of how trying to set too many goals simultaneously may end up hindering each of them. That said, when training for multiple aspects (like multi-sport athletes in the offseason) what are your experiences?
Using Light, Medium, Heavy workloads, I have three thoughts.
A: Opposite workloads. When in a Heavy strength phase, be in a Light Speed or Conditioning phase, and vice versa. Medium phases overlap.
B: Matching workloads. Heavy in one, Heavy in the other. Light in one, Light in the other.
C: Rolling waves. MLH in one while HML in the other.
As I see it, the advantages of A from above is that you’re never going too intense. The disadvantage is that yo’ my don’t truly have Light phases. With B, it is on the extremes, while C is a mix.
I put this in Beginners because I couldn’t decide a better forum for it. I hope it makes sense.
